To my students and advisees: I’ve emailed a few of you, but just in case, I’m also putting this here. You’ve been trying to get in touch with me, especially this week when registration is pending, but when I’m not in class I’m flitting off to somewhere else. I was away in Washington DC last Thursday afternoon through Sunday, and I’m about to do it again with trips to Mankato tomorrow, a long weekend at a conference in Oregon, and then zooming away again right after class on Monday to Fergus Falls. Trust me, though, you’re not the only one feeling a bit tired of it all.
Here’s the deal, though. I’m done with today’s teaching at 12:45. I’m going to be in my office from 1 to 5, with the door wide open. I’ve even shoveled the stacks of books off of two of my office chairs — it’s almost hospitable in here. So come on by, I’ll be there all afternoon, and the only business will be student business. If you’ve got registration stuff to take care of, we can do that; if you just want to say hello, that’s cool, too.
